I'm trying to ink a drawing using the freehand stroke tool in Inkscape. I understand that this tool creates filled shapes rather than lines with strokes, so I'm using the Path Effects Editor to change the width. However, when I make a new stroke, the width resets to the default value of 1. I would like all of my line widths to be the same, but when I select all of the lines, I'm told that I can only edit one stroke at a time. Is there a way for me to change the stroke width for all of my lines at once?

I found the answer using this: Is there a way to copy live path effects from one object to another in Inkscape?, but first using Remove Path Effects so that two of the same effects are not pasted on top of each other.
